Eddie Izzard: Lifetime Achievement Award

We are delighted to announce that comedian Eddie Izzard will accept the 7th Annual Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism — an award presented at Harvard University each year by the Humanist Community at Harvard, the American Humanist Association, and the Harvard Community of Humanists, Atheists, and Agnostics.

Previous recipients have included: novelist Sir Salman Rushdie, punk rock star and biologist Greg Graffin, writer/director Joss Whedon, TV debunkers Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman (of the hit show Mythbusters), humorist Stephen Fry, and author Mary Roach.

Held in Harvard’s Memorial Church, a historic building in the center of the campus yard, the award ceremony honors an individual whom we feel has made a superlative contribution to Humanism in world culture.

In addition to his humor, Eddie Izzard’s political activism, charity work, and support for education reminds us all that the nonreligious can be outstanding members of global society.

Join us for this celebration, performance, and opportunity to ask questions!

Wednesday, February 20, 8:00 pm.
Harvard’s Memorial Church
One Harvard Yard
Tickets available at the Harvard Box Office now!
